A bit behind here but earlier in the month at the craft club I go to the competition was to make a baby card using the bleaching technique. This is my take on it, and, surprisingly, considering the other entries, my card won! I got a £5 voucher to spend in Finishing Touches craft shop in Totnes - it took me all of 5 minutes to do that!

This is what I made my 2 partners in the Oriental Stamp Art Group's MOSAS29 swap for March. We keep the same groups (of 3 people) for 3 months and each send a handmade oriental style card or gift to the others in our group. The base is stampbord dabbed with a mixture of different blue alcohol inks with a touch of silver mixative and stamped with a text stamp (Legend of Mulan by Stamp Magick) then embossed several times. The top square is also a piece of stamped stambord coloured with watercolour pens. I added silver lined glass beads along the bottom using a strong glue, and a hanger on the back.
